BBC Scotland commissions second series of The Harbour

A SECOND series of an observational documentary about Aberdeen harbour has been commissioned by BBC Scotland.

Produced by Aberdeen-based Tern Television, the six-part first series of The Harbour enjoyed an audience, says BBC Scotland, of around 360,000 for its Monday night screenings, and an average 250,000 for a Sunday repeats.

The second series will also comprise six episodes and they are due to air during the latter half of this year.

In a BBC Scotland media release, David Harron, executive producer of The Harbour for BBC Scotland, is quoted, as saying: “We are absolutely delighted to be bringing viewers another series of The Harbour. The first run in October/November last year was a huge success and clearly struck a real chord with the audience.

“Our intention is to retain some of the characters who had become established in the programmes, while adding some interesting new faces and delving into other areas of harbour life.”
